How to Use Wallpaper Engine With Two Monitors
Before you use Wallpaper Engine with two monitors, you’ll need to connect the two screens to your PC so they can communicate. To begin, double-check that the wiring for the two monitors is correct, then follow these steps.
- On your computer, open “Settings.”
- Under the “System” section, choose “Display.”
- If your computer doesn’t automatically detect the two monitors, go to “Multiple displays” and then “Detect.”
- Select how you want your monitors to align from the dropdown menu.
- Once you’re done, select the “Apply” button to apply the changes.
Once the two monitors are successfully connected, follow these steps to start using Wallpaper Engine with the two monitors:
- On your computer, start the Steam application.
- Under the “Software” section, select the “Wallpaper Engine” option.
- Click the “LAUNCH” button to open the app.
- Under the “Choose Monitor” drop-down menu, select how you want your wallpapers to span the two monitors. For example, you can choose the “Stretch single wallpaper” option to use one wallpaper across the two screens. Alternatively, you can use a different wallpaper on each screen by using the “Wallpaper per monitor” option.
- Once you’re done setting up the wallpapers across the two monitors, select the downward arrow to collapse the window.
Please note that the “Stretch wallpaper” option can significantly compromise the pixel quality of your wallpaper. Only a few wallpapers in the Wallpaper Engine Steam workshop can be stretched without looking pixelated.
If you want to change the dual monitor setup you’ve just created above, follow these steps.
- Open the Steam application and launch the “Wallpaper Engine” software.
- From the top menu, select the monitor icon.
